Alex Dyer has been confirmed as the new permanent manager of Kilmarnock.

Dyer has penned a two-year deal at Rugby Park after stepping in to replace axed Angelo Alessio in the Ayrshire hotseat last season.

The Englishman previously enjoyed success working as Steve Clarke’s assistant as the pair helped Killie to a third-place finish in 2019.

Dyer said: “I’m extremely proud to continue as manager of this wonderful football club and I thank the directors for the faith they’ve shown me.

“My passion and desire to lead this club and team has been strengthened during these recent months away from football and I’m looking forward to start working with the team again as we prepare for the season ahead.

“I’ve always enjoyed a close bond with the fans and I’ve been blown away by how they’ve continued to show their support during the shutdown.

“This season, starting out without supporters in the stadium, will be unlike any other that I’ve ever known but that continued sense of unity can help carry us through until we’re able to reunite at Rugby Park.”
